WWE Friday Night Smackdown Preview- 26/08/05- Hampton, Virginia
We are five nights removed from a wild and exciting night at Summerslam where a number of Smackdown superstars stole the show while others found things to be a little more frustrating.
One of those men who found Summerslam to be frustrating was the man who challenged for the WWE Championship, Kurt Angle. Angle came up short in his quest for gold, being toppled by John Cena, however it wasn’t without controversy. Cena delivered a devastating FU off the top rope, covering the Wrestling Machine and scoring the three count, only for replays to show Angle’s foot was on the bottom rope. In what was such a huge match on a huge stage, the mistake will have left Angle irate and we have learned that he will kick off Friday Night Smackdown and demand answers as to what went down in Washington. Just what will Angle have to say as we head to Hampton? Will the WWE Champion himself, John Cena have anything to say on the matter? All we do know, is it’s bound to be explosive.
At the opposite end of the scale, Summerslam was a memorable night for Randy Orton as the Legend Killer defeated The Undertaker in impressive fashion. Orton pulled off one of the biggest wins of his career and later in the night made his intentions clear, the WWE Championship is next on his agenda. Will Orton make his first move tonight or will he be stopped in his tracks, perhaps by an angry Phenom?
Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio appear to finally be on the path to figuring out who screwed them at the Bash as they seek another shot at the WWE Tag Team Titles. Tonight on Smackdown, Teddy Long has vowed to call out MNM and demand answers regarding just exactly what transpired all those weeks ago. MNM are sure to deny the allegations but will the General Manager be able to find a break through? Or will Van Dam and Mysterio fall short once again in their quest for redemption?
The United States Title was defended at Summerslam as Matt Hardy defeated Carlito. However, it was the aftermath that left people talking as Carlito viciously assaulted Hardy backstage, clearly furious at having been ousted by the champion. Due to that attack Matt Hardy will NOT be on hand for Smackdown tonight but we know Carlito will be. Will the Apple Spitter have anything to say about his actions this past Sunday or is it simply all about the gold for Smackdown’s ‘Coolest’ superstar?
Bobby Lashley picked up the biggest win of his career thus far Sunday night, defeating JBL in a smash mouth contest. Lashley has dominated since coming to Friday nights and will be in action once more this evening. Will Lashley’s hot streak continue? Or will he finally be put in his place, perhaps by the ‘Wrestling God’ himself, John Bradshaw Layfield?
Also confirmed for tonight, the Cruiserweight Champion will be in action as Gregory Helms faces Brian Kendrick. Helms has requested this match in order to prove to Paul London that all the back up he can find will result in nothing as he looks to topple Helms and his acquaintance, Chavo Guerrero. Plus, Booker T will be in action as he takes on Chris Masters in a battle between two men both coming out of recent rivalries and both looking to step up the ladder on Friday nights once again.
Confirmed for Smackdown:
Kurt Angle will kick off the show!
Gregory Helms vs Brian Kendrick
Booker T vs Chris Masters
Teddy Long will call out MNM
Bobby Lashley will be in action
Appearances from Randy Orton and WWE Champion John Cena!!
